This Day in Braves History- Greg Maddux

2003 Topps #694
On this day in 2003, future Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux recorded his sixteenth straight season of least 15 wins- a new major league record- as he passed Cy Young's previous mark of fifteen years. Maddux would go on to record his seventeenth 15+ win season in 2004, a record that seems destined to remain for many, many more years.
Mad Dog was also pretty good in the field, too (an understatement)! He won a record eighteen Gold Gloves during his twenty-three year career- yet another number that no pitcher will probably ever match.
